Dear Parse Tree,

Congratulations!!  You have exactly gotten my point!!  In America, if
ignorance is bliss, we have all died, gone to Heaven, and kissed Jesus
Christ full on the lips.

What can we do to reverse this hideous trend, short of repealing the 19th
Amendment, declaring VAWA 1 and 2 UNCONSTITUTIONAL as a Federal Court
already did, reversing the Declaration of Sentiments of Seneca Falls, NY,
and booting the sluts who call themselves educators out of our overpaid and
underproductive embarrassment to educationalia?




Sincerely,


Richard C. August
